Job Description


WE ​are Slice Labs​ (Slice). We’re building a team of innovators and disruptors to help us “un-fix” insurance to meet the demands of an on-demand world. We are disrupting the idea that insurance needs to be a fixed product, with a fixed term, with fixed coverage. We believe it can and should be all digital and on-demand, so customers get only the coverage they need, right when they need it. We’re focused on ensuring our products provide a positive, individualized customer experience. Our smaller teams invite broader thinking and problem solving, where nobody is pigeonholed into a predetermined role. We work in an open, supportive environment that values and promotes inclusiveness, innovation, and collaboration. It’s fast-paced, dynamic and fulfilling.

Our Quality Assurance team collaborates with our product development and customer facing teams to design, build and execute test plans that will ensure our digital insurance products and solutions fulfill customer needs and expectations by meeting functional, technical and quality standards. This ROLE​ has primary responsibility for leading the effort to design, implement and maintain an efficient test automation framework and platform that is scalable across product lines and test phases.

YOU​ are passionate about quality and the end customer. You want to understand customer needs and apply your technical expertise to ensure we deliver validated digital solutions. You take ownership and deliver on your commitments. You are a collaborator and a communicator and are energized by working with multi disciplinary teams. You enjoy sharing your knowledge, mentoring and guiding team members. You are solution-focused and like to get things done. You appreciate the fast pace and opportunity a start-up environment provides.

You bring:

  • proven experience delivering best-in-class test automation frameworks that drive an efficient, effective and scalable testing capability, including use of modular and highly reusable components.
  • demonstrated success selecting test automation tools, ensuring integration and compatibility with other tools
  • solid background in testing and developing automated tests for consumer-based products delivered through web and mobile applications (iOS and Android)
  • technical depth and experience to understand our technology landscape and identify priorities for automation based on risk and value
  • commitment to reporting on results and striving to continuously improve
  • ability to communicate easily and effectively with all levels
  • proven ability to mentor and guide junior staff
  • university or college degree in computer science, or equivalent experience
  • 5+ years in the test automation field with at least 3 years leading the design and implementation of test automation frameworks and test repositories.
